Christmas in Kenya is somewhat paradoxical for me every year. While our family is busy celebrating the Advent season with gingerbread houses, twinkle lights and Christmas cookies, we are also so acutely aware of the many children in our region who find themselves without basic necessities and, most heartbreaking, those without parents.
Though I won't offer many updates about the Bemm family in this post, I will share with you a cause that has been on my heart this Christmas season as it is every year at this time.
Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.
Below are some of the ways that you may help us in assisting these orphans and needy families.
$5 can purchase a bible
$10 will buy a pair of shoes
$50 will purchase a sack of maize to feed 30 children for a month
$100 will purchase a cow for a needy family
$200 will assist orphans to build a new home
$500 will assist an orphan to attend school for a year!

More than anything, please pray for the many whom we encounter daily.
Please pray that they would know the love God has for them.
This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.
1 John 4:10-11
Thank you for your support and prayers.
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas
and a Happy New Year,
Amy and the Bemm family
